Readers of this site and others may notice the absence of URL links to the original stories published in the Oregonian newspaper.
Despite being one of the most profitable newspapers in the nation, the Oregonian, along with other Advance Publication operations, runs an irresponsible web site.
Recently the web site - which probably has no connection to the Portland paper - decided to change all the URL addresses for it's news stories. This decision broke all the linkages - the direct connections - between this blog and Oregonian news stories about James Chasse.
The decision did not just effect our blog. All news story links to the Oregonian are broken.
We could recreate the links - a toilsome process - or recognize the irresponsible status of the Oregonian web site.
We've decided to retrieve and post the entire the news stories we need for this blog from the Oregonian archive, accessible with a Multnomah County library card through PORTALS or through the Multnomah County Library.
